974 copy slipcased edition, signed by Les Edwards & Johnny Mains ISBN 978-1-848638-54-9. Hardnosed lawyer Billy Halleck carries a few pounds more then he should but, hey, hes happy, content, successful and, well, lets say highly sexually charged. Its this latter area thats the cause of all thats to befall him, when his wife, Heidi distracts him while hes driving and causes Billy to run down a woman who was part of a group of traveling Gypsies. The case is kicked out of court (thanks to the judge being a personal friend of Billy) and everyone is happy. Well, everyone, that is, except for the dead womans father whos less than impressed with American justice.
Thinner, he whispers in Billys ear as he strokes Hallecks face. And, hoo boy, its a retribution that truly takes the cake as, from that very moment onwards, Billy Halleck discovers the diet of the gods. No matter what he puts away, the pounds continue to roll off. Initially fearing some virulent cancer, Billy is relieved when he gets the all-clear. From then on, hes happy with his lot: I mean, whats not to likeclear your plate as many times as you want and you dont put on an ounce?
Except, Billy wonders, how will this condition end? Not well, Billys inner voice whispers.Often overlooked in summaries of Kings works, THINNER is a true tour de force. A rivetting page-turner of the highest order.
